How do we select our umbrella partners?
Our approach to due diligence incorporates credit checks for financial stability, regular audits of processes and procedures, confirmation of accreditations and memberships and a detailed investigation of financial processes, practices and standards. So we are safe in the knowledge that our contractors operate within a structured and legally compliant framework that protects our contractors, our clients and ourselves.
We view our partners as an extension of our services, in place to provide expertise, guidance and support to ensure that our contractors have the peace of mind to be able to concentrate on delivering the services required.
We have five selected partners selected for umbrella services; Paystream, Umbrella.co.uk, JSA Group, Danbro and Champion. Click on the links below to find out more.
All our chosen suppliers are approved partners of Jonathan Lee Contracts Limited only as a result of our strict and detailed due diligence checks. Our contractors are able to benefit from the efficiencies of our integrated systems and the benefits of the discounted prices available to Jonathan Lee contractors.
